Permits were issued Wednesday for a new three-story residential building with a garage at 1244 N Greenview Avenue in West Town. The owner is listed as Daniel Mihalescu and plans indicate that the project will include two total units, a finished basement level, a rooftop deck, rear decks across levels, and a detached two-vehicle garage with its own rooftop deck. The lot is currently vacant.
Chicago YIMBY continues our Sister Cities series covering projects across the Midwest with a newly completed building in our closest neighbor city, Milwaukee. The predominantly residential structure at 700 E Kilbourn Avenue in the heart of downtown has become the world’s tallest mass-timber structure, placing the city at the heart of the discussion of future construction technologies. Developers New Land Enterprises and Wiechmann Enterprises partnered with architecture firm Korb + Associates on its design and Thornton Tomasetti on its engineering.
By Fulton Market‘s height standards, a towering new residential development has been proposed for the 375 N Morgan Street, lying adjacently west of the underway Guinness Brewery project. Spearheading both projects on the two adjacent parcels, developer Fred Latsko has called for a nearly 40-story building with more than 500 for-rent units. Given its similar number of floors to the nearly topped-out 900 Randolph, we can likely expect a height in the range between 450 and 500 feet. Latsko had previously mulled plans for a 30-story office development, but has shifted due to ever-increasing apartment demand and the lifting of the neighborhood’s moratorium on new residential developments.
A new construction permit was issued this week for a multi-unit residential building located at 2046 W Addison Street in the North Center neighborhood. The permit was issued to Mike Anderson to erect a three-story, multi-unit masonry building along with a two-vehicle garage. The filing also indicates the presence of a roof deck and an external staircase. Demolition permits were issued to this address in early August.
Sterling Bay, the real estate developer behind the $6 billion Lincoln Yards masterplan, has revealed plans for a new 15-story apartment building directly to its east in Lincoln Park. The project faces Sterling Bay’s mega-assemblage from across the North Branch river, calling for 359 new units on a parcel addressed as 2031-2033 N Kingsbury Avenue. Of the total unit count, 36 on-site residences will be affordable. In addition, Sterling Bay will contribute $5.1 million to the city affordable housing fund. The Chicago-based developer has partnered with Lone Star Fund as a joint venture, further continuing their collaboration beyond Lincoln Yards.
